Fern Cottage: A House of Creativity, authored by Avery Cleary and Lisa Symonds summarizes the research of several individuals in reconstructing the history of the Cottage.
It recounts in detail the Dorr and Steele families histories and their interests and contributions to the arts. Their artistic and transcendental views were influential in the physical aspects of Fern Cottage. Floor plans and photographs accompanying the text reflect those concepts.
Note: At the time of this publication the house had been remodeled and used for meetings and retreats and the “Connecting Kids to Life” program.
